Natures trance is there for you, take it in and enjoy it too, the beauty of nature’s face is looking back at you.
Waking up to the crisp morning air, summer is gone and fall is near.
Childhood memories are everywhere, the woods, the lakes, the rivers, the snakes, the deer, the bears and the mountain air.
The crispy fall breeze is also filled with my young adventurous childhood thrills.
The crackle of a fire is part of my heart’s desire; my toes get closer to the warmth of the woodstoves heat I admire.
Looking deep into the colorful flames the movement of the fire sets me into a trance of my childhood past.
I remember running through the woods every twig crackling under me, hearing the crinkle of the leaves and pulling up my sleeves.
I can also see my mom drinking coffee to the whisper of the wind, listening in her mind to the rivers voice within.
She would lose herself in time, I could see it on her face, as a child I didn’t know it was nature’s trance that kept her safe.
I slowly lose myself now inside nature’s trance too, just as I saw my mother’s eyes leaving at a glance in the feeling she knew.
Nature saves my mother’s soul and now as I softly disappear to the beauty of the morning air, I can feel the healing of my mother’s heart and the years I thought we grew apart.
Really what was happening in those years we were apart, was truly the wisdom we gained to love each other with a more compassionate heart.
Going inside and leaving fear and seeing my life through my mother’s tears, rewrites the moments I was sure she had disappeared.
Nature’s trance is part of me, a way, a face, a feeling, a place, a childhood friend, chopping wood and a fire leaving my life more understood.
I can thank you mom for so much more, thank you for raising me with the great outdoors.
The great outdoors has lead me now to the next part of my life.
